it is getting better

first eid mubarak. it has been long time i didnt write, but really it took me time to settle down in this new country.
very luckily, i found a job, a miracle for an expat woman in saudi. i started last week, beginning of dec. my office is like a prison: a female office should not be in the middle of male offices in saudi, it should have a different entrance than those of males, it should not have any window looking outside, so that no one sees us,
i am alone in the office, the only female working there, among some 800 employees.
I have to be veiled and wearing the traditional abaya.
my colleagues are nice so far, butt some looking at me in a weird way. may be it is the first time they see a female working.

i am so happy to be back to work, but working in a prison is killing me.
